Our Assessment Approach

We assess each student's skills with our own subject assessments.  These assessments were created by Dr. Milyko to clearly identify each learner's academic strengths and weaknesses. We do not use the results of typical standardized tests as their results do not assist us in helping your student.

Selecting an Assessment

We have a wide array of subject assessments that are appropriate for every student:

For the student who is already academically successful and seeks advancement, select the subject area(s) in which the student wants to advance.

For the student who is falling behind, select the subject area(s) in which the student is struggling.

For the student who requires comprehensive remediation, we typically recommend a combination of a Reading Assessment, Math Assessment, and a Reading Comprehension or Writing assessment.

After a conversation with our Director, parents select the subject area(s) of assessment for their student.  Below is a list of the subject areas we assess:

* Learning Readiness

* Expressive Language

* Handwriting

* Basic/Advanced Reading

* Basic/Advanced Math

* Basic/Advanced Reading Comprehension

* Writing (Grammar & Composition)

Please see our Pricing page for assessment prices for one or multiple subjects.

Try It Out Yourself!

Our two most popular subject assessments are basic reading and basic math.  To do a little screening in the comfort of your home, for free, please follow these steps:

Basic Reading

You will need to print out these worksheets to conduct a short sample of our assessment.  Keep in mind that these words should be mastered by the end of 2nd grade.

Test #1: Sounding out words

Set the kitchen timer for 30 sec (to count down to 0).  Have your student sound out each sound unit within each word and then blend the word together for 30 sec.  For example, "c-a-t, cat".  Each sound and word spoken correctly is worth 1 point.  The fluency goal is 60 points in 30 sec.  Watch out for "uhs" (e.g., "puh"-"i"-"n", "pin").  These "uh" sounds are incorrect and do not earn points.  If your student does not reach the fluency goal of 60 points in 30 sec, he/she likely needs the basic reading assessment.

Test #2: Reading words

Set the kitchen timer for 15 sec (to count down to 0).  Have your student read the word list for 15 sec.  Each word spoken correctly is worth 1 point.  The fluency goal is 20 points in 15 sec.  If your student does not reach the fluency goal of 20 points in 15 sec, he/she likely needs the basic reading assessment.

Basic Math

You will need to print out these worksheets to conduct a short sample of our assessment.  Keep in mind that addition and subtraction should be mastered by 1st grade; multiplication and division should be mastered by 3rd grade.

Test #1: Addition

Set the kitchen timer for 15 sec (to count down to 0).  Have your student say the answer to each addition question.  Each correct answer is worth 1 point.  The fluency goal is 20 points in 15 sec.  If your student does not reach the fluency goal of 20 points in 15 sec, he/she will likely need the basic math assessment.

Test #2: Subtraction

Set the kitchen timer for 15 sec (to count down to 0).  Have your student say the answer to each subtraction question.  Each correct answer is worth 1 point.  The fluency goal is 20 points in 15 sec.  If your student does not reach the fluency goal of 20 points in 15 sec, he/she will likely need the basic math assessment.

Test #3: Multiplication

Set the kitchen timer for 15 sec (to count down to 0).  Have your student say the answer to each multiplication question.  Each correct answer is worth 1 point.  The fluency goal is 20 points in 15 sec.  If your student does not reach the fluency goal of 20 points in 15 sec, he/she will likely need the basic math assessment.

Test #4: Division

Set the kitchen timer for 15 sec (to count down to 0).  Have your student say the answer to each division question.  Each correct answer is worth 1 point.  The fluency goal is 20 points in 15 sec.  If your student does not reach the fluency goal of 20 points in 15 sec, he/she will likely need the basic math assessment.
